No matter how you pronounce it, North Carolina's pecan growers are gathering to promote their skill.

The N.C. Pecan Growers Association is hosting its annual educational workshop and orchard tour on Saturday at the Lenoir County Extension Center in Kinston. It's open to anyone involved or interested in pecan farming.

The workshop includes orchard demonstrations and discussions on weed management, orchard design and using social media to market pecans. The interactive event also provides time for those attending to network with other growers and program presenters about specific production questions or issues.

Growers, specialists from N.C. State University and N.C. Cooperative Extension, and marketing staff from the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services will be taking questions.
